How can I setup the connectivity indicator on task bar?

Hi

In WindowXP there used to be an icon on the bottom right of the task bar that let you know (by lighting up) if you were downloading and/or uploading data from the interenet. How can I set this up in Windows 7?

Cool, that works perfectly. No malware and it doesn't have to be installed, just run.
